    The Hale Difference: Paraben-Free

    Hale's products are good for your health! When it comes to selecting the right products to promote your skin health you know it's important to check the active ingredients. You may research where they come from and how they are formulated and treated to ensure that the product you apply to your skin delivers on its promises of better hydration wrinkle reduction etc. But the inactive ingredients can be just as important.

    Why Skin Care Products Have Preservatives

    Some of the inactive ingredients in skin care formulations do not do anything for your skin health per se but they may keep it safe for application. You see skin health products serums creams and lotions are often the pH balanced moisture-rich environment in which bacteria and other microscopic pathogens thrive. Certain preservatives inhibit microbial growth in your skin care products keeping them safe for skin application.

    The Problem with Parabens

    Parabens are a family of chemicals that have bactericidal and fungicidal properties in other words they kill of bacteria and fungus. That seemingly makes parabens perfect for use in skin care products. However products that include parabens may work on your skin but they also deliver chemicals that interfere with other body systems. Parabens are known endocrine disruptors they interfere with other hormones your body's chemical communication system. Some parabens have been linked to estrogen activity believed to be a driver for tumor formation In fact parabens have been found in breast tumor tissue. Some parabens are highly reactive in the presence of UV radiation contributing to premature skin aging and DNA damage (which may translate to an increased risk of certain skin cancers).

    How Hale is Paraben-Free

    Because Hale Cosmeceuticals is committed to delivering products that promote skin health without compromising overall health we do not use parabens in our formulas. Instead we use safe preservatives including preservatives deemed safe for usage in foods including scorbic acid benzyl alcohol and rosemary oleoresins. To inhibit microbial growth we also use International Specialty Products' Optiphen preservative line. Optiphen is paraben-free and formaldehyde-free so it delivers protection against a wide array of microbial threats without endocrine disruption heightened allergic reactivity or increased risk of cancer. That's the Hale Difference.
